If you are from Bangladesh, India and I think also from Nepal and want to become MVP. I would suggest:

  1. Do some massive community work both online and offline like writing books or may be articles, participating in forums, newsgroup, blogging, creating few open source projects etc whatever that really helps the community.
  2. Both Microsoft Employees and existing MVPs can nominate you. If your think your contribution is extraordinary and if you know any of them, you can ask to nominate you. Or
  3. You can download a nomination form for South Asia region and nominate yourself.

The MVP award is announced every quarter and is based on previous year's contribution. If your name is not announced, wait for the next quarter and increase your community activity and apply again. The bottom line is you are helping the community with your exemplary contribution thus making the people life successful.
